She was his anchor.
He was her home.
Gracie Taylor fell in love with Noah Chase, Idle Point's golden boy, on the first day of kindergarten. Gracie was the girl from the wrong side of town. But when they were together, nothing else mattered.
Then, on their wedding day, Gracie discovered a secret that sent her running from Idle Point, leaving Noah with a broken heart to match her own.
Now, eight years later, Gracie returns to Maine for her father's wedding. When she discovers Noah has come home to Idle Point to save the family business—and that he has a little daughter named Sophie—Gracie also discovers that nothing has changed. Their love for each other is stronger than ever, but the secrets that drove them apart still hold the power to ruin their lives.
Will past mistakes destroy their love or will they finally find happiness together... at last?
